Difference between G650 xcountry and xchallenge
Hi all as above.
What are the merits of each?
And failings?

Here is one comparison

Biggest failing is the size of the fuel tank. A friend of mine hired a G650 Xcountry in Morocco and we had to syphon petrol from the tank of my Tenere twice when he ran out of fuel. Nine litres even with a low fuel consumption of probably 22-23 km/litre just isn't enough to allow you to explore wilderness areas.

X-Country is more road orientated. Has a comfy seat, but the front suspension can't be adjusted and the back end is hard for going off road. The X-Challenge has adjustable front suspension and an air bag type suspension on the rear. The seat is not comfy for long rides either. Wheel sizes on the rear are 18" for the X-Challenge and 17" for the X-Country.
